City Builders: Exhibition Launch and Documentary Film Screening
The City Builders research and public history project aims to record, preserve and divulge the fascinating history of Metro Toronto’s construction industry, particularly the working experiences and labour organization of its immigrant workforce after the Second World War. The project’s outputs include a travelling exhibition, a website, a series of oral history videos and a two-part documentary.
On Sept. 28, we are launching these contents, starting with the exhibition at the Scott Library atrium (2nd floor), featuring artifacts and displays, along with extensive digital videos, audio recordings, photos and text. A smartphone or tablet with internet connection and QR code reader app is needed to access the exhibit’s digital content. For best results, download the free mobile app, izi.TRAVEL, at izi.travel/en. The use of ear/headphones is recommended.
The presentation and documentary film screening at the Price Family Cinema, in the Accolade East Building, will start at 7 p.m. (doors open at 6:30 p.m.) and end around 9:45 p.m.
Both events are free and open to all.
